By the by, if anyone is interested in recommendations, these are the ones I am reading or have read (alphabetical, not in order of quality). Feel free to ask me about them. Read more

Should it? Entertainment is so niche-ified, I’m not surprised most people haven’t heard of it. I mean, Tik Tok has been enormous for years, and I know adults that are just now hearing of it. And Webtoon started off as a pure Korean comics website, so even for those that are into webcomics, many of them are going to be Read more

I’ve heard of all the titles they’ve mentioned, but I had no idea they were the top popular ones on the site since those aren’t the ones I tend to read. I tend to gravitate towards the Korean translated ones, although it should be said that Line translations are very hit or miss.

Also, I love the vertical scroll, but Read more

Their A Way Out playthrough was super fun for them, and I think that kept them sane throughout this.

Best Doki Doki playthrough, and updog will never not make me laugh.

Mudbud regularly dismisses. I wouldn’t take it personally, he doesn’t like people disagreeing with him.

That may have been an apt metaphor, but I feel like you just used this conversation as an excuse to talk about cookies.

It’s not like examples of this don’t exist in the past, but they’re always one offs, like the Wire. It should be a more regular part of the TV landscape rather than having to point at the one example.

Maybe they were, I don’t remember it that way. But even if they were, because the Newswire was a smaller portion of the site relative to the other stuff, it didn’t feel as overwhelming as it does now.

Cookie, I have been here since at least 2010. The site has definitely become more political. It used to be that the Newswire was a smaller portion of the site compared with the Reviews section. The Music and Film sections were equally as large as the TV, if not bigger, before TV took over. Now, the Newswire seems to Read more

There are like 4 or 5 alternates in different places, but without the accompanying articles to reply, it just isn’t the same.

Normally, I would recommend some old series of articles, but the site is a shitshow now and I don’t remember most of the names of them, and I can’t find a link to the list of all features. There used to be an easy to access one. It’s a travesty as there was some incredible writing on here that was easy to access. Now Read more

I understand the business reasoning behind crossposting among the different sites, but man has it hurt the discussions.

It’s very strange. On the one hand, this site has become a lot more political and a lot more outwardly liberal, to its detriment I would say. On the other hand, the shift to being part of gawker and using kinja has made what I would consider an uncontroversial article have a lot more blowback from the comments than it Read more

People thought Looking was boring? I enjoyed it a lot. The movie after was really great too.

Rather than rare, I think I mean that it is more often pointed out, or has its own storyline. I feel like while you might be right that there are more lesbians in non specifically gay cinema, I would argue there are less lesbian storylines than gay male storylines.

Well said. I would just like to add that just as it takes empathy on those learning, it also takes empathy on those educating, and it can be a struggle for both. I can totally understand how having to educate every single person you meet becomes exhausting at some point, but it’s always disheartening when someone in a Read more
